Street vs. Duchscherer

Postby FoolOnTheHill » Wed Jul 06, 2005 12:52 am

Which of these two will be the better RP for the rest of the season (with emphasis on saves)? Street is the obvious choice but is there concern about him? Is there a credible case for Duchscherer being better? Who will end up in the closer role?

Duke is better for now, but Street will be more valuable because they're keeping him as the closer.

Don't see how this is much of an argument. Their ERA, WHIP, and K/IP is almost identical, but Street is the closer, and Dusch is pitching at about half his ERA from the last two seasons.

Any chance Duke gets traded this month?

Zero. Guys that don't make much money and are All Stars don't get traded. (Unless, of course, someone were to make a ridiculous offer.)

street has more worth fantasy-wise because of the saves. duke will get the save opps if street is injured or unable to pitch, but otherwise he's just a good MR. as thehat said, there's almost no chance that he'll be traded, so don't count on that.
